Organic production is a system of farm management and food production that combines best environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity, the preservation of natural resources, the application of high animal welfare standards and a production method in line with the preference of certain consumers for products produced using natural substances and processes. Mie et al. (2017) reviewed existing evidence on the impact of organic food on human health and compared organic versus conventional f...

ABSTRACTHuman health and socio-economic development are intimately tied to food access and food security. In a world capable of producing sufficient food to meet the entire dietary nutrient needs of all its people, income plays a determinant role in dictating who has access to food or not, with under-nutrition and malnutrition still negatively affecting the health and well-being of many of the world's poorest nations. This article attempts to compare the role played by fish and fishery products ...

Phytases have been employed in animal feeds for several years, used primarily for reducing the environmental impact and phosphorus loads of farm effluents. Beneficial effect of dietary phytase has been associated with the limited ability of monogastric animals to utilize dietary plant phytates. To date, numerous studies have shown the positive effect of phytase supplementation on the availability of dietary phosphorus and trace minerals within plant-based feeds for monogastric farm animals, incl...

This study evaluated the use of hydrolysed rubber seed meal as a locally grown alternative feed ingredient to reduce the use of fishmeal within formulated feeds for tilapia. Five experimental diets were prepared by formulating different inclusion levels of hydrolysed rubber seed meal (0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of plant-based protein contribution). Dried and defatted rubber seed meal was hydrolysed by adding rumen digesta liquid to the ingredient. For digestibility measurement, chromic oxide was...
For the purposes of this paper, biosecure shrimp feeds and on-farm feeding strategies refer to the “feed, whether live, fresh, or formulated, and the management of the feed on the farm, should not be an entry point of potential pathogens to the shrimp and/or to the culture system.” The paper reviews the different feeds commonly used for the production of farmed shrimp and discusses their potential risks from a disease perspective, including the use of live hatchery and nursery feeds, the use of ...

Abstract The apparent digestibility coefficients (ADC) of six practical protein ingredients, Chilean fish meal (FM), soy protein concentrate (SPC), poultry by-product meal (PBM), corn gluten meal (CGM), meat and bone meal (MBM), and hydrolyzed feather meal (HFM), were determined for juvenile white shrimp ( Litopenaeus vannamei ) at dietary inclusion levels of 10, 20 and 30% within a reference diet containing 20% fish meal. The shrimp was stocked in 500 L tanks equipped with automatic feeders and...

AbstractThe good-quality white flesh of cobia (Rachycentron canadum) and high value in some markets make it one of the most important marine fish species for future aquaculture production. Commercial cobia farming from hatchery-produced seed stock began in the late 1990s and some aspects of broodstock management, larviculture, nutrition and health, among others, still need research and improvements. The present compilation covers the period between 1967 and 2015 and includes publications on cobi...

In vitro assays simulating the digestion process have been extensively used in the evaluation of the nutritional quality of foods and feeds for humans and terrestrial animals. Such techniques have been comparatively less used in nutrition of aquacultured species, although in recent years the interest in developing alternatives to the conventional in vivo digestibility assays has increased. Using 65 published papers as a reference, this review summarizes the different approaches and configuration...
